It is important
to bring your child with you to kindergarten registration so that
your child will become familiar with his or her new school as
well as participate in a brief skills assessment.
Georgia law requires
that children must be five years old on or before September 2007
to be enrolled in Georgia public school kindergarten programs.
To register children, parents are asked to bring proof of age,
such as a birth certificate, two proofs of Henry County residence,
an immunization certificate on Georgia Form 3231 (available at
physician's offices and the county health department), and eye,
ear, and dental examination records on Georgia Form 3300. Parents
will also be asked to provide the child's Social Security number.
A child entering
school in Georgia for the first time must be age appropriately
immunized with all of the required vaccines (DTP, DTaP, DT, or
Td; Hepatitis B; Hib; OPV or IPV; Measles, Mumps and Rubella or
MMR; and Varicella (Chicken Pox). Proof of Hepatitis B vaccination
is required to enter kindergarten. Parents are being advised to
begin the Hepatitis B vaccinations as soon as possible, because
the series of three doses takes a minimum of four months to complete.
The first day of
school will be August 6, 2007. For more information about kindergarten
registration, please call the school at 770-957-5777.
